BansomQare Manna Ransomware
If it sometimes looks like this ransomware pandemic is about to end, we get the likes of BansomQare Manna Ransomware terrorizing users again. This time, the malicious infection seems to want to scare innocent users into thinking that they have been infected by the notorious WannaCry Ransomware because it uses the same interface design. However, there is nothing in common between these two infections, and you should seriously focus on remove BansomQare Manna Ransomware from your system today. As usual, deleting ransomware programs is not much of a challenge. It is a lot more difficult to restore the encrypted files.
Aside from using WannaCry’s design, this program also comes with a Whatsapp icon, so it makes it look as though the infection is related to Whatsapp, too. However, it is clear that Whatsapp has nothing in common with this dangerous program. The bottom line is that BansomQare Manna Ransomware is a dangerous infection that is used by cyber criminals to make easy money, and you should not fall into this trap. Before we go through the usual ransomware behavioral patterns, we would also like to tell you more about the potential distribution methods that could be employed by BansomQare Manna Ransomware as well.
Normally, ransomware infections spread through spam email attachments. We must have mentioned this countless times before, but ransomware programs seldom employ new distribution methods. Although using spam email is like trying to hit a target with your eyes closed, if you have a lot of tries, you will eventually get at least part of the target, right? At least that is the logic behind using spam email for malicious content distribution. The sheer amount of the spam email sent guarantees that some of the messages will reach their target. Not to mention that spam email campaigns are the cheapest way to spread their content.
Users can always scan the attached files they get with email messages. If you do that, you will probably be able to prevent a number of infections. Unfortunately, the messages that carry these malicious attachments often look like urgent notifications from some financial institution or an online store. When you see something that looks urgent, you are more likely to click it without any second thought. Thus, a lot of users get tricked into downloading the file that is supposed to be an important document, but in reality, they download a BansomQare Manna Ransomware installer, and their system gets infected.
Once the malicious program enters your computer, it runs the encryption, locking up most of your personal files. Interesting enough, we have found that BansomQare Manna Ransomware also encrypts a lot of files in the Windows directory. Normally, ransomware programs do not do that because they need your system to work properly, as they expect you to pay the ransom fee. So it could be that the people behind this infection have not thought it through, and even paying the ransom would not help you get your files back. Of course, paying is definitely not something we would advocate.
When the encryption is complete, BansomQare Manna Ransomware will display a ransom note that says you have to email them via MildredRLewis@teleworm.us. They also give you a bitcoin wallet address that you have to use to transfer the payment. According to our research, there have been no bitcoin transfers to the given wallet address yet, so it is clear that BansomQare Manna Ransomware is not popular, and that the infected users know that paying these criminals is never an option. Instead of giving them your money, you should look for ways to restore your files.
What is the easiest method to get your files back? Of course, it would be the best if you had copies of your files saved on an external hard drive. This way, you could just remove BansomQare Manna Ransomware along with the encrypted files, and transfer healthy copies of your data back into your computer. However, if you do not have your files saved elsewhere, you might want to consider going through your inbox and your mobile device because it is very likely that you have the latest files saved there. Check your social media accounts, too! If nothing works, you can try decrypting the files with a public decryption tool that you can find online.
